JOLIET – Alisa Massaro told police during questioning that she and Joshua Miner had sex on the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins.

Massaro testified last week during the murder trial of Bethany McKee that she did not have sex on the victims.

But in a video recording played in court, Massaro said she is "very embarrassed" to talk about the sexual encounter, which investigators apparently learned about from questioning Miner.

"At what point did you have sex on the bodies," Detective Carlos Matlock asked Massaro during questioning.

"I don't want to talk about it," she replied.

"Was it before [the bodies] were moved out of your bedroom," Detective Tom Ponce asked.

"Yes," Massaro answered.

Massaro also acknowledged Adam Landerman stood on the bodies to "surf" on the victims.

McKee is charged with murder for allegedly luring Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins on Jan. 9, 2013, to Massaro's residence in the 1100 block of North Hickory Street.

Glover and Rankins, both 22, were allegedly killed by Miner and Landerman as part of a robbery.

All four suspects were charged with murder, but Massaro pleaded guilty to lesser charges in exchange for testifying against the others. Landerman and Miner are awaiting separate trials.

Massaro told detectives "it was a possibility" the victims came over expecting to have sex with her and McKee.

"They got real [upset to see Miner and Landerman there]. You could tell by the look on their faces they were upset," she said on the video.

The interview video, which the court began viewing Monday, is part of the opening of McKee's defense in the case.
